White Sox call up Anderson, designate Rollins for assignment - Yahoo Sports

The Chicago White Sox have called up top prospect Tim Anderson and designated struggling veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins for assignment.

The White Sox purchased Anderson’s contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, hoping the shortstop can help jolt a team that has gone from leading the AL Central with a 23-10 record to fourth with a 30-30 record entering this weekend’s series against Kansas City.

The 22-year-old Anderson batted .304 with four home runs and 20 RBIs in 55 games with Charlotte.

Rollins, the 2007 NL MVP, hit .221 in 41 games after signing in late February.

White Sox sign Jimmy Rollins to minor-league deal

e White Sox have signed shortstop Jimmy Rollins to a minor-league deal, according to a report from Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago. The deal includes an invite to major-league spring training, and includes a $2 million base salary if Rollins makes the team’s major-league roster.

Rollins, 37, will likely have a good shot to make Chicago’s Opening Day roster as a veteran complement to Tyler Saladino at shortstop. Alexei Ramirez had manned the spot for the ChiSox for years, but the team declined his option at the beginning of the offseason and he signed with the Padres last month….

Rollins spent last season with the Dodgers, posting a .224/.285/.358 line while hitting 13 home runs in 144 games as the Dodgers’ primary shortstop. He has never appeared in the American League, spending his entire career with the Phillies (2000-14) before being traded to the Dodgers last winter.
